I sent this to Betty, but meant to send this to everyone...

When I proposed the idea about a book, I really was serious. However, I
cannot do it all on my own (actually, I probably could, but not at this
time). Anyway, I feel that the artists represented should be well
known. Should they be as famous as Picasso or Van Gogh? No, but they
should be established artists whose work has played a role or has made a
contribution to the art world for at least the last 60 years or so.

Preferably, I would like to use living artists, but that really doesn't
matter. Female or male, adult or child, any medium will do (and yes
there should be a large variety including computer generated and video).
The artist doesn't have to be from the state (or country) you live in,
or teach in. I just thought that would be fun (and those of us who do
live close to NYC have an advantage).

I guesss a good way to get started is for everyone interested to e-mail
me personally at fromkinr with the artist they have
chosen, and the medium they work in, and I'll see how many people
respond and take it from there.

I would love to be able to do this electronically, but am not capable
yet to do so (skillwise). I also think we should try to get this
published and split the millions (think big).

Talk to you soon,
